The stories of Shakespeare’s eight plays based on the Plantagenet Kings of England—from Richard II to Richard III—are retold here. Entertaining and informative, they present the plots and introduce the main characters. This is the ideal way to get to know the plays in preparation for a visit to the theatre.
